Julian Herman Good, Sr. - SAVANNAH - Julian Herman Good, Sr., died August 18, 2013, of complications from pneumonia in Savannah, Georgia, where he had lived since 2006. He was eighty-two years old. The son of Bertha Goldsmith Good and Louis Kaufman Good, Sr., Julian Good was born in New Orleans and attended Isidore Newman School. He was a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Tulane University and graduated Order of the Coif from Tulane Law School, where he served on the Tulane Law Review. He served in the United States Air Force as an officer in the Judge Advocate General's Department and was discharged as a first lieutenant to return to his hometown of New Orleans to practice law. He was an avid reader and accomplished bridge player. He served on the boards of Isidore Newman School, Metairie Park Country Day School, Jewish Federation, Willow Wood (now Woldenberg Village) and on the Advisory Committee of the Dean of the Tulane Law School. Mr. Good was president of Touro Synagogue and remained active there even after his move to Savannah. Mr. Good was a preeminent real estate lawyer in New Orleans, practicing for over 50 years.
